Liz Hickok Takes DC

Liz Hickok is back from from Delaware and, on along the way home, she took over Washington DC.

That's right, she was in charge of the most important house in America and she laid down the law, with Jell-O. Listen in on how she did it-


I'm excited to announce the release of my new project The White House: The First 100 Days. The time-lapse video is my hopeful vision of the positive changes that the White House will go through with its new residents.

Three limited edition photos capture the transition from the moldy, shrunken house on day one... the glowing, shining symbol that I hope it will become by day 100, with Obama in office. I have decided to print the smaller size of the photos in a larger edition than my San Francisco in Jell-O series, and to donate 5% of all net proceeds to a local DC charity. The video and photos can both be viewed on my website, along with a other new videos you may not have seen.
If you would like to see the photos in person, and you are going to be in the Bay Area, you are invited to come to Mission Open Studios during the weekend of April 25th and 26th from 11am-6pm, with a special collectors’ preview night on Friday the 24th from 6 to 9pm. Find out the details and see some of the other artists in my building here.

Thanks so much!
Liz Hickok
Yet, no only has she helped to give hope to America, she also fights crime in her spare time.


Get yourself a case of Lipitor to get you through this post, because we are going to be talking about the bacon, the bacon, and nothing but the bacon. Apparently in San Francisco, there was a BaconCamp 2009 and it was devoted to all things bacon. Not just the food itself, but also the paraphernalia as well.

Where's Chris? He needs to see this...

We're talking bacon pillows and note the spinning game pointer at the bottom of the pic says...

..."What would bacon do?"

Dang, chocolate bacon cupcakes. I'm not entirely sure about this. No, seriously, where's Chris? He has tried chocolate with bacon in it. And where's the Bacon Lady? She missed out.

Bacon sushi, bacon band-aids, all kinds of things and people devoted the wonder salty meat. At least there wasn't a bacon dirigible...oh, the bacon-anity. Check out the slide show at SF Weekly.

Jaime Lauren Dishes On New York Food Spots.

I'm going to be perfectly honest here, the only show other than "No Reservations" that I can honestly say I watch each and every episode? "Top Chef," and "Top Chef." Then there's "Top Chef," of course.

"Chopped" and "Chopping Block" are okay, but I don't consider them real "Top Chef" substitutes...apples and oranges, don't ya know? So how does one bridge their jones until the next season of "Top Chef?" With Jaime Lauren, of course.

Dan over at OurScene TV hooked us up with a clip of Jaime touring some of her favorite eateries in the NYC. We're talking Shake Shack, Porchetta (which I know the family anticipates going to on our next trip into Manhattan) and The Treats Truck. Also for Jaime fans, on the same page is a better interview than Jamie got in any of the San Francisco papers.
